In 2017, Memorial Day is celebrated on Monday, May 29th. While it is a fitting day to honor our Fallen Military Service men and women...how many of us remember when Memorial Day was always celebrated on May 30th., regardless of what weekday it was?.

We also need to remember those who perished on December 7th, 1941 at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii...a date that seems to have lost its importance nowadays. A good train friend recently sent me this video and I would like to share it with you all...it is a truly moving experience...



At our home we fly the Stars and Stripes every day. For Memorial Day, a special American flag flies...a flag that flew over an American Military Base in far away Iraq, given to us by an American Sailor...Seabee Lance Pruknal...who is also a toy train operator and a friend who also served in Afghanistan.

.





Especially during this Memorial Day 2017, take the time to reflect and remember those who have answered the final call, perhaps a few additional moments of silence in respect of their memory.

A soldier — whether active duty, discharged, retired, reserve or at eternal rest — is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount of “up to, and including his/her life.” Sadly, over the years, many of these checks have been cashed but we each need to remember these soldiers every day with enduring thanks.



May God bless, keep close to Him and protect our current day soldiers and keep them safe when in harm's way.

I remember them all including the memories of my dad Walter/US ARMY who fought in WWII at the Battle of the Bulge and across Europe, my father-in-law Mickey in WWII/US Navy in Europe, my Uncle Mike/US ARMY in WWII on Iwo Jima and across the Pacific, my uncle Joey/US ARMY post-war on the DEW line in Alaska, my uncle-in-law Andy/US ARMY in WWII with General Patton, my uncle-in-law John/US ARMY in the Phillipines and my grandfather-in-law Joe/US MERCHANT MARINE SERVICE/US NAVY in WWII and US Navy in Vietnam War era...with deepest gratitude.

Thank you...and God Bless America.

"...there is still something magical about a little train running around on a track."

Why Should You Choose RMT-DIRECT for your 0-27/0 gauge trains...

RMT products feature high quality but affordably priced 0-27/0 gauge trains for the toy train operator or collector.

If you remember those toy trains that held a special appeal under the Christmas tree of your youth...do not worry as RMT DIRECT also remembers.

Using many years of actual prototype railroading experience combined with 21st Century manufacturing ability will allow RMT-DIRECT to offer what many toy train hobbyists are calling the best 0-27 gauge toy trains available in today's marketplace.

RMT products features colorful paint schemes in those many railroads that cris-crossed America...with names that were a geography lesson (remember geography?) as you read the boxcars that rolled by.

Set up a toy train layout on the floor, get down close and watch those trains run by. Close your eyes and remember how it was when you were a child operating your toy trains.

The RMT brand offers a wide assortment of toy trains, tracks, buildings and accessories to share this wonderful hobby with your children, grandchildren, family and friends.

Rather than just offer 3 or 4 roadnames in a freight car...the RMT brand offers at least 20 different RRs in every car type so you can choose shortlines, regional favorites or mainline giants.

Each railroad depicted on an RMT locomotive, passenger car or freight car is a realistic model of the 'real thing'. Fully painted in each railroad's colors with logos and lettering that recreate the prototype but in model form.

We like trains and have spent many years 'on the railroad'.
